[ News, Economy / Industry, March 25 2008] KT to extend trans-Pacific cable to Japan

KT Corp., Korea’s biggest fixed-line operator, said Tuesday (Mar. 25) it plans to extend its ongoing trans-Pacific undersea cable construction project to Japan.

A KT-led international consortium and a U.S. telecommunications company, Tyco Telecommunications Ltd., signed a deal in late 2006 to build an 18,000-kilometer underwater cable linking South Korea, China and Taiwan with the U.S. to meet the growing demand for trans-Pacific Internet services.
